Tell Premier Wynne Ontario should reject Energy East
From Manitoba to New Brunswick, communities and their drinking water are at risk from the proposed massive Energy East pipeline. If built, Energy East would be the largest export pipeline in North America.
The risks created by Energy East far outweigh the economic benefits to the province, the Ontario Energy Board found. The pipeline would directly threaten the drinking water of 1 million Ontarians – and 5.6 million Canadians across four provinces. The project would also lead to a dramatic increase in oil tanker traffic in the iconic Bay of Fundy, risking harm to its fragile marine ecosystem and species such as endangered Atlantic Right Whales.
In Paris, Canada committed along with 195 other countries to protect our future by keeping global warming below a limit of 1.5 degrees. To keep that promise, Canada cannot continue to build major new fossil fuel infrastructure projects like Energy East.
